Each year, more than 1.5 million Americans suffer brain trauma and 80,000 to 90,000 people are left with long-term disability.
Rapid neurologic care at a Level 1 Trauma Center may make the difference between permanent impairment and a successful recovery. The Neurotrauma Program at Westchester Medical Center offers the highest level of care for those patients with brain trauma. Westchester is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut, and is one of the most comprehensive neurotrauma programs in the country. Each year, our specialists see hundreds of patients with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
